I chose the apprenticeship route initially because I was not sure if I would be able to get into a university with the A-level courses I was doing. However, after I started to have a look at what some of the apprenticeships where offering, my mind started to change, and I was actively looking for an apprenticeship in the field that I wanted to have a career in. I would recommend apprenticeship to anyone. Being able to work, earn money and go to university to get a degree at the same time is a great opportunity, especially in the field you want to work in.
